Cheyney, Arnold B.; Capone, Donald L.
This teaching resource is aimed at helping students develop the skills necessary to locate places on the earth. Designed as a collection of map skill exercises rather than a sequential program of study, this program expects that students have access to and some knowledge of how to use globes, maps, atlases, and encyclopedias. The volume contains 6 lesson plans and 13 map activity quizzes. The "Explorer Series" section of the book includes short biographies of Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan, Sir Walter Raleigh, Henry Hudson, Captain James Cook, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, Amelia Earhart, and Wiley Post. A 50-item appendix including 46 outline maps, a quiz checklist, and proficiency certificate concludes the volume. (RLH)
